Sweet Balsamic Meat Loaf


Tonight I made my boys Meatloaf for dinner.  I didn’t want to hear “meatloaf again,” so I thought I would try something different.  Awhile back I made a Balsamic Vinegar glaze for a pork tenderloin and thought….why not on meatloaf?  So that’s what I did.  And by the clean plates afterwards, I would say it was a success.  Below I will walk you through what I did and what I used!  I hope you try and enjoy this recipe!

Our Baked Macaroni


I will admit, this is not a fancy dinner.  I was having a bad “head” day yesterday and really wanted some good ole comfort food, and this is it for our family…. well, that and my Potato Soup lol. (I will have to make that and post it as well!)

In our family, this has to be one of the most requested “birthday” dinner meals, even from when I was a child!.  And it has to have Double Tomatoes according to Chris, my husband, and chief guinea pig lol.  He loves it too.  He and Dillon, my son, will usually say “Baked Macaroni again?” but then never fail to clean (and almost lick) their plates each and every time.

Now just last week Kim and I were discussing options for adding things to this recipe to test out but I just couldn’t bring myself to alter from our tried and true method…this time!

I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as we all do!

Crispy Roasted Potatoes


We LOVE Potatoes.  I am sure that is becoming apparent with the number of potato recipes I have posted so far (embarrassed face).  They are easy to make and for the most part, potatoes are a good inexpensive comfort food side dish.

I hope you enjoy this very easy Potato recipe, and my lazy, fewer dishes method of making them!
